ABSA Cape epic 2019

Simon Brändli and I will start in the UCI Pro Team Category at this year's Cape Epic!

The Cape Epic is the biggest, best known and probably toughest mtb stage race in the world. It takes place every year in march in the region of Cape Town, Western Cape in South Africa. This year's edition has the biggest amount of climbing per kilometer to be tackled in the history of the Cape Epic! In total we have to conquer 624km and 16650m of climbing.

To follow the Cape Epic live you can download the Epic Series App! Here is the link for Android and for Apple devices. In the app you find GPS livetracking, intermediate times, the latest news and a livestream too! 

You can also follow the race online, there are daily live streams on Youtube or Facebook! More information about how to follow the race from abroad here.

The start gun for our team #suimtbo racing goes off on Sunday, 17. März 2019 at 11:30:40!

You will find many personal updates from us on our instagram feeds! If the time and energy allows, I'll post some updates here on the website too.

Throwback to the training of 2018

World Cup Finals in Portugal

The final world cup round of 2018 took place in Odemira, Portugal. In the beginning of the week I started my studies (electronic engineering), but already in the first week I had to skip classes. I have to get used to make up missed work, because I will have to skip some more classes because of my sportive activities.
